Recent guest reviews

The first room had a flea and lots of hair on the sheets. Second room smelled like stale cigarettes and made everything I brought in there smell.

Room was clean, looked to be updated somewhat recently. Basic but good for an overnight stay.

Met our needs for a quick overnight stay. Price was great with our Orbitz bucks.

The staff was amazing and friendly. The hotel is nicely located to stores, restaurants, and the highway. Great location!!

Staff was friendly. All the basic amenities. Nothing fancy but it was close to many restaurants, bars and stores. I'd stay again.

Everything was perfect to be honest..better than expected. For $50/night you can't go wrong. The hotel is very clean, comfortable and quiet. Also it's upgraded which is nice!

Positive experience all around. Pleasant staff, comfortable room, nice location.

It was close to many restaurants and right next Walmart which was convient and right off the highway!

Rooms were decent, location close to many stores and freeway, staff was great! Will stay again!

My room was dirty when I got there. Bed a mess, towels and rags and trash laying a round. Clearly not cleaned after last occupied. Had to go back and get new room. Room suppose to have refridge and microwave and had nothing. I was there 3 nights and was there for training every day 12 hours. Everytime I came back to go to bed after a long day, I would have to get my card reprogrammed. I will make a note not to stay there next year as this is a yearly conference.

disappointed got there office closed for 15 min at midnight. Was not very friendly at all. Shower didn't work well hot water for 5 min. tops.....

Excellent hotel. We stayed 2 nights. First night, next morning, failed to clean room and replace towels. Notified office, went to dinner. When we returned new towels room ready. good job

3star hotel clean room good staff but I will not bring my wife here but it was OK to stay there by myself only because I was working in the area. I will be back.

If you want a clean place to spend the night that is very easy on your pocket, this is the place. I decided to book this after i read multiple reviews. It stood by the reviews. I would visit again if i am planning on spending the night in that area

This Red Roof in is, literally, in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart right off the highway. We stayed here on a visit to the University of Akron, which is less than 15 minutes away. Lots of dining options close by, and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms all have exterior-facing doors, which can be a consideration in the cold winter months! There is no exercise room, and on Saturday morning our showers were lukewarm at best. This is a clean, decent facility with few amenities, which is why I rated 3 stars.

Nice TV. Must be paper thin walls. I guess you get what you pay for...

Good location, not a bad price, many local stores near by.

Everything was very clean. Staff was friendly. Very basic amenities but at a good value and good location

The room itself was fine...but this Red Roof Inn did NOT give me the single King room I had booked online, with coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave. Instead they gave me a double room, minus coffee maker and hair dryer. No one could explain why I didn't get what I paid for, nor did the manager call me as promised to try and make amends. I did not sleep either night of my stay, as tired as I was. We needed one large bed, not two little ones. Very disappointed.

my need was simple: coming in late and needed to be near CAK (Canton-Akron airport) because my flight was so early. I was very pleasantly surprised, given the low price: the staff at check-in was courteous and friendly and the room was spotless. The next morning I got my 5AM wake-up call as requested and my drive to the airport was under 10 minutes.
